A fantastic trip covering a large range of habitats along Australia's beautiful East Coast. We ventured into Tropical Rain-Forest, dry 'Tablelands' and Mangrove Swamps in North Queensland. Temperate forest dominates the hinterland near Brisbane in Southern Queensland where a different suite of wildlife can be found.
New South Wales offers another contrasting set of landscapes supporting an equally diverse range of species. The Blue Mountains hold several rare and endangered endemic species encompassed in the most beautiful terraine. Sydney is not to be missed and offers a unique insight into how urban wildlife integrates with the hoards of human tourism especially around the harbour area.
We spent 3 weeks in early spring discovering all of the above and much more, our list of 312 species of birds, 27 mammals and a huge variety of insects and wildflowers is a testament to the terrific biodiversity of this isolated antipodean gem. The next tour will be October 2018, come and join us.
